"God Gave Us Angels" by Lisa Tawn Bergren

20 September 2014

This is the first book in the "God Gave Us...." series that we have ever read, and we absolutely love it. I can't wait to read more from the series.

Lisa Tawn Bergren is a great author. I love how she explains angels....angels live to serve God. Recently, my son has been asking a lot of questions about angels and this book has helped him understand them more.
“What do angels do all day, Papa?” When Papa finds Little Cub looking for angels, it gives him a chance to tell his beloved child about those that may be in their midst, even when they can’t be seen. Exploring their exhilarating Arctic world as they talk, Papa lovingly answers all of Little Cub’s questions about angels—and as usual, she has a lot. She wants to know what they do, how they look, how they guard God’s loved ones, and best of all, how they serve the Creator of the world. “God really created angels to serve him more than us, Little Cub. They love him and would do anything for him.” This uplifting tale will encourage young hearts by exploring the glory and design of God’s messengers, while turning toward him with praise.
The illustrations in the book are awesome. Before we read the book, my son requested that we only look at the illustrations. He's always fascinated at the art work.

I would recommend this book to everyone. It's recommended for ages 3-8, but anyone would enjoy it.

NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women

19 September 2014

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, is a bible that will help you read the whole Bible in 365 days. It's different than a regular bible that you would carry to Church on Sundays. I love how each day is numbered and not dated. If you miss a day, you won't be off track. Each day has a check box, I plan on using a highlighter to mark off the days as I go. The readings for each day are not long at all, so it's very easy to set a time to sit and read without any problems. Each day there are scriptures from the Old Testament and the New Testament. There is also something from Psalms or Proverbs and a short devotional.
With this NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women, you can read through the Bible in a year... or at your own pace. Now you can practice the spiritual discipline of daily Bible reading at your own pace. Want a reading plan that will take you through the Bible in a year? You got it---and check boxes too. Don’t want the guilt of falling behind in your daily reading? You won’t---each daily reading is numbered, not dated, allowing the flexibility you need as you strive to engage God’s Word every day. Looking for a Bible with insights about what you as a woman most need to hear? These are included as well in the intuitive, hopeful devotional thoughts located at the end of each daily reading. The NIV Once-A-Day Bible for Women organizes the clear, accessible New International Version Bible into 365 daily readings. Each day’s reading includes a portion of Scripture from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and a Psalm or a Proverb, followed by an encouraging devotional thought specifically written for women.
This is the perfect way to read your bible within 365 days. I recommend it to all women. It would make a great gift.
